Workshop on Paediatric Regulation – stakeholders to discuss how to boost development of medicines for children
Event to be broadcast live on 20 March
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) together with the European Commission is organising a workshop on 20 March 2018 to identify and discuss potential improvements to the implementation of the European Union's (EU) regulatory framework specific for paediatric medicines, the Paediatric Regulation.
The workshop will be held from 9:00 to 16:45 UK time at the EMA premises in London. An updated programme of the event is available.
The workshop aims to support the development of a concrete action plan to address shortcomings identified in the ten-year report on the implementation of the Paediatric Regulation published by the European Commission in 2017. The event will bring together a broad range of stakeholders, including patient representatives/carers, academia, healthcare professionals and industry to explore opportunities regarding identification of childrens' health needs, timely completion of paediatric investigation plans (PIPs) and improvements in the handling of applications for PIPs. Representatives from national competent authorities, EU institutions and other stakeholders will also attend.
Registration is now closed, but you can follow a live broadcast of the workshop by clicking on the 'multimedia' tab on the event page.
A report of the workshop and presentations from the event will be published on this website in due course.
